Windows 11 adds Android app support for everyone next month
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-11-adds-android-app-support-for-everyone-next-month/
It's important to note the caveat posted by Microsoft.
"Devices that have a Microsoft Account (an MSA for Home edition) and have eligible releases and compatibility
(See Windows Release Health for more information https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/release-health/)"
Again, the headline "For Everyone" will have quite a few exceptions.

Windows 11 KB5010414 update brings long-awaited taskbar improvements
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-11-kb5010414-update-brings-long-awaited-taskbar-improvements/
The change in the widgets location is actually an unwelcome change for me.
It now pops up unexpectedly when my mouse is moved down too far on the left side of the taskbar.

Something new in the latest Windows 11 Preview Build 22567

This can run alongside your third party AV to protect your system.
You'll notice mine is turned off because it can only be turned on for a clean install of Windows 11.
Since this was an upgrade from Windows 10, I'd have to do a clean install inorder to use this feature.
The feature basically enforces signed application usage. If the app (program) doesn't have a valid
signature, it will not be able to run.
There is currently no provision for exclusions. More details available here:

If your taskbar, system tray, or Start menu acts up, give this a try.

Microsoft is testing ads in the Windows 11 File Explorer
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/microsoft-is-testing-ads-in-the-windows-11-file-explorer/
Not anything I can confirm.
It's also odd that this entry is dated 11:27 AM · Oct 13, 2016

Windows 7 recovery app fails after January updates
This effects all editions of Windows 10 versions 1607 or later
and all editions of Windows 11.
"Recovery discs that were created by using the Backup and Restore (Windows 7) app
on devices which have installed Windows updates released before January 11, 2022
are not affected by this issue and should start as expected."
